I am trying to mount a password protected samba share.
When I access the share via smb://server/share in nautilus there is no password/user promt, it seems I am logged in as a guest and I can browse folders but I cannot access my files (which are in a subfolder that appears to be empty).
When I use nautilus GUI "connect to Server" prompt, I get back "Please verify your user details" although I am absolutely certain they are correct.
Note that I can access the share and my files without problem via
smbclient -U user //server/share
Also, using a MacOS machine I can also mount the shares without any problems.
So I try to mount the share via the commandline:
sudo mount -t cifs -o user=user //server/share /mnt/sth
mount error(22): Invalid argument Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)
This seems to be a Kernel related bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=832741.
So my question is: what's the simplest way to solve this? Did anyone experience something similar? Did a Kernel update solve it (at the redheat forums it seems to work for some but not for others). Am I doing something wrong?
I use linux mint xcfe 13, my Kernel version is 3.4.0.
EDIT: 20/2/2013, I still don't have a solution for this and appreciate any help.
